Everyone interested in drone technology and variations on flying machines are welcome to join us for the inaugural Spy vs. Spy picnic and parade in New Orleans during Automata! The parade and picnic will take place on Sunday, November 18, in New Orleans– location and other info is still to come.
In addition: Automata’s machine show opening night at the Ironworks is Saturday, Nov. 17, and all participants are welcome to bring their flying robots to the exhibit for some flying demonstrations. We will work to provide a map of areas in New Orleans where DIY flyers can roam freely.
Two great items of news:
H. Cole Wiley will head organization of the Flying Robot Parade. Cole is a code-writer, sculptor, and inventor and has already been indispensible to the carrying-on of Automata- he will be one of the great forces behind the show this year.
& thanks to Cole, our first sponsor of Spy vs. Spy is GitHub! A perfect match!
Cole will bring you further updates on the Flying Robot Parade and on activities and developments with Automata, and information on our sponsors and how to sign up or show up for Spy vs. Spy and surrounding activities.
A brief resume- he is about to finish his degree at LSU, Baton Rouge in Sculpture, with a minor in Digital Art and Computer Science, after which he will spend some time in New Orleans working on Automata and his other projects- including Decode72 design solutions. Look for one of his installations at the Ogden Museum later this year.
More news on the near horizon!
